Aquatic Ellipticals

Hi my favorite readers!
Exercising in water provides so many benefits, not the least of which is being able to move about more freely and less painfully than on land. Most exercises, or movements, you can do on land can be done in water. Here is one that I like to do to help stretch my leg and hip muscles. It’s called Aquatic Ellipticals.

Get into deep water where your feet cannot touch the bottom. This allows your body to be entirely supported by water. This completely takes pressure off your joints.

Use your arms to tread water, keeping your head above water. Treading mainly means moving your arms back and forth to stabilize your lower body and keep from drowning.

While you are using your arms to tread water, straighten your legs. Start moving them back and forth, each individually. The movement reminds me of being on an elliptical rider. Do not bend your knees. Make it one continuous movement to receive the optimum benefit.

You may want to pretend you are actually on an elliptical rider by moving your arms like you would while using the machine. Believe me…doing this in water is MUCH easier than on land. When your left leg is back, your right arm will be forward, etc. Do whatever feels comfortable for you.

Move your legs in this style 20 times, or as many as you are comfortable with.
I count one movement as when my tkr, total knee replacement, leg extends forward.

When done properly, you will feel your hip, thigh and butt muscles working. That’s in addition to your arms getting a good workout. That’s the benefit of water exercising, you get an all-body workout no matter what area you focus in on. This can help living with a tkr much easier and less frustrating.

Find interesting? Kindly share..Thanks!
